    The fact is the dealerships are being fantastic to me, it's Honda UK that are acting disgracefully towards me and their dealerships.

    Moral of the story is don't buy extended warranty.

    Or, don’t trust Honda UK. I’m going to get a legal expert in my family to give his opinion on the contract since I think Honda are on thin ice if there is any ice at all.

    You still going to keep a hold of it after all the chew on you've had?

    As long as they can assure me that the problem has been resolved, yes. I really like the balance of the bike - not crazy power and not too aggressive riding position. Tempted by an S1000RR M sport but insurance is crazy for me owing to postcode, plus I don’t fancy shelling out £15k for one of the latest 2020 models.

    I think i’m going to cancel my extended warranty. I have never heard of a warranty that the holder has to pay for diagnostic time, there is absolutely no point in having it.
    Most things can be bought on the internet quite cheaply and hopefully things won’t go wrong. I just can’t be arsed arguing with Honda if anything did go wrong. At no point at all when Doble told me about the warranty when i bought the bike from there did they mention it wouldn’t cover the diagnostic time. It was sold as an extension of the manufacturer warranty and all the same benfits. The manufacturer warranty doesn’t expect you to pay for diagnostic work, you take it in faulty and pick it up fixed with no cost.....

    This is true.

    Normally the repair is either covered or not covered.

    I’d talk to Doble Honda first to see what their view on it is as so far I’ve not been asked to pay anything - it’s just Honda Customer (don’t) Care that are insistent that the customer should pay. PR disaster for Honda UK I think that the more people get in touch with them the more they might reconsider their position. I suggest emailing [email protected] to ask them what they are playing at - the more that do the better as far as I’m concerned.
